Hello Local Business Owners! Yova is getting ready to introduce our line of Bubble Tea (aka Boba Tea) this weekend!!   If you haven't had it, its time to try something new - you can add it to your favorite smoothie (my personal favorite is the Lemonade Chiller with the Strawberry Popping Bubbles), or add it as a FroYo topping. 


We are also introducing a few more tea options; Thai Iced Tea (sweet with a softer 'chai' taste to it) and a new concept of customizing your own flavored hot or iced teas. 


Things are changing and I hope you'll find some time to stop in , check us out and offer any suggestions on how we can better serve the community!!


Thanks for reading ;)

Hello Everyone,


Just getting started here on, Live Here Oak Park. Just wanted to say hello to fellow small business owners and let you know about my company. I co-own an online custom printed apparel company. If you are looking for some t-shirts to help market your company or have a need for quality business shirts, check us out online:


We also have a Free T-Shirt give-a-way going on for 10 free printed shirts. Check out our Facebook page if you are interested.


I look forward to participating in the Live Here community!

Dave I can't figure out how to respond to you.  Online vs in store vs. serving to go vs packaged products all get different tax rates . . .


You don't charge tax to someone who is purchasing your product on-line from a different state unless you have a retail outlet in that state.   


You are responsible for the tax rates - have that accountant in place before you sell your first cup o tea.  It will be a lot easier to have that accountant in place at the get go - so that you can reference it at your first audit.  :)   And yep - they audit.

Hello everyone!  Even though it feels like Summer is far, far away, Yova is getting into the Summer Spirit with our $1.00 FroYo Promotion.  Every Sunday our 5oz FroYo is only $1.00!  

We are also planning our first Art Event for the weekend of June 4-5. Any suggestions on how to create a fun, exciting and successful event?

Thanks for the update, Deza. Being an admitted coffee snob, I'm happy to hear Yova will be brewing Blue Max coffee. I'll now have a new spot for coffee in Oak Park.

Good morning everyone!  In a continued effort to work with local businesses, Yova is proud to be brewing coffee from Blue Max coffee in Forest Park.  Please help us pick your favorite Blue Max blend by stoping in and taking our blind taste test - the winning Blue Max blend will be announced on our Facebook page (The YovaShop) and on Twitter @YovaShop next Wednesday.  Have a great week and stay warm :)

Hey everybody this is a great deal and a great chance to update your head shot.  I know I need one, getting a photo without my son's ear in it is probably a great idea

Hi Everyone,

I know I sent a message to everyone, but I thought I would repost on this wall.  Yova Coffee Shop is in need of more artwork/photos done by local artists/photographers.  If you or someone you know would be interested in displaying and selling their pieces, please feel free to contact me directly at  Also - if the St. Patty's Day spirit moves you tomorrow please stop in for a Shamrock Jubilee Shake!!!!
